Heathers movie screenwriter: It was a mistake to delay the Heathers TV series due to Parkland
“I think they made a mistake pushing the show back because of the Parkland shooting,” said Daniel Waters, who wrote the 1988 cult film but has no involvement on the Paramount Network TV series. “When it comes to dark comedy, you just have to throw it out there and have people chew on it and argue about it.”

Heathers movie writer backs the TV show as its creator responds to the "haters"
Despite fearing the worst, Daniel Waters wrote "I liked it!" after watching the the Paramount Network remake of his cult classic movie. "Okay, Episode 1 is the Mad Libs parlor game version of the movie we feared...but it ends well," he wrote on Facebook. "The further the show moves away from the film, the better." Meanwhile, Jason Micallef, creator of the Heathers TV series, responded to the criticism on Twitter reacting to the backlash, tweeting "my show is definitely doing something right." He added in a tweet with a screenshot of Waters' Facebook post: "Thanks for all the love for #Heathers and now that our God himself has spoken, the haters can go crawl back into their quarries."
